“An editorial in the Washington Post [on January 10, 2001] ten days before [President Bill] Clinton left office noted: ‘Yemeni officials say they have developed substantial evidence that the [October 12, 2000, USS Cole] bombing was ordered by the Saudi-born terrorist Osama bin Laden, and financed and coordinated by Muhammad Omar al-Harazi, a bin Laden associate.’ The editorial concluded that the Bush administration ‘will also need a coherent strategy for countering Mr. bin Laden; clearly, it will not inherit one.’ ”
